I have a secret for you.
Sometimes, we tell our clients NOT to build…
Sometimes, we tell our clients to WAIT, or even, STOP.
Did you know that if you are meeting in a school, you’re probably not going to need your own facility for about 7 years? Not to say that it can’t get very tiring!
There have even been times when a church is looking for property, and we say DON’T.
The fact of the matter is that once we take a good hard look at your ministry needs, do some site analysis and assess your existing building space, we often find out that you don’t need new land or that new educational facility you’ve been wanting. There’s simply a little shifting of space that can be done to accommodate your needs and still make room for growth.
Findings like these can save you time and money. Church Solutions just posted an article interviewing one our fellow NACDB members, highlighting 3 ways a church can accomplish what it needs to do without building a building.
Don’t tell other architects or builders that we’re not just about the building. Being about the ministry, serving God’s people is OUR secret. It’s actually why we do what we do! And love it.
